Based on his best-selling book, 'The Coloring Book,' Comedian Colin Quinn takes on the history of New York - his hometown - in this solo show, directed by Jerry Seinfeld. More…
In 'Colin Quinn The New York Story,' Colin bemoans the rise and fall of his hometown, the city formally known as New York, from its modest beginnings as a Dutch outpost, to the hipsters of modern Williamsburg, to the vermin below and above ground. Quinn employs satire to take aim at the prejudice, paranoias, and peculiarities that make New York City the crossroads of the world.
See it if you enjoy Quinn. CQ is more stand-up than of theater. The history is fun, the characters vivid. Still, some material seems misguided.
Don't see it if the idea that the old days were better bothers you. It was better for white men. The second half lags. I had fun, but it's not real theater.
See it if You want to hear a very cynical and very funny view of the way New York City has developed and changed.
Don't see it if You will be bothered by the fact that you're paying about $1 a minute to be there.
See it if you like one person shows, or comedians or Quinn himself. You should be interested in politics and probably liberal although not necessarily
Don't see it if you don't think Quinn is funny or if you don't like one person shows. The show is very political and also quite similar to his Netflix stuff
See it if you're a fan of intelligent, well-constructed comedy. Mr. Quinn's laid-back style creates a very intimate experience, serving the work well.
Don't see it if you are expecting loud, raunchy comedy. This is more of thinking man's stand up, jokes are clever and insightful. Truly a wonderful night.

Don't see it if you are easily offended, have no ethnic background, or hate New York.

Don't see it if You are overly sensitive. If you can’t sit thru an 80 minutes one man show in a rather uncomfortable theater.
See it if you love New York and everything about it. Or hate New York and everything about it. Quinn is low-key, funny, and spot-on. A great time.
Don't see it if you are looking for laugh-a-minute comedy or something terribly profound.
See it if You can laugh at yourself, at your neighbors, at people you've never met. Broad stroke stereotypes in wrapped in SMART, recognizable laughs!
Don't see it if You're a tight ass.
